The wiring challenge is nearing completion. The last wires are twisted paid to reduce interference on the occupancy detectors. The wiring needs some last tidying-up and the testing can begin in earnest.
The servos driving the points have been adjusted and the train detection circuits are being installed.
The main wiring continues. The limitations of the traditional way of model railway wiring are becoming apparent.
Droppers and occupancy detectors tested and working. Ongoing work on point automation.
The final part of track has been added and work had started on the shuttle electronics that will shunt the loco back and forth. The perils of eBay again - a OO gauge signal that will be more at home on Dockland O gauge!
Some track planning and finding out that some flexible tracks are less flexible than others
Malcolm C focussed on hiding the frog switching wiring on the double slip only to be interrupted to assist Ray in tracking down some problems on the CBUS control system.
Still working on trackwork - some led lights have been used to get the double slip wiring correct.
A class 08 makes its first appearance as testing of the trackwork continues.
Some serious woodwork to extend the baseboards and the sparkies deal with power surges.
